Hair Loss and Hair Transplants
Hair loss is a devastating condition for many men and women, but it doesn’t have to be permanent thanks to recent advancements in medical hair transplant technology. To learn whether you’re a candidate for this treatment option, see below.
Male Pattern Baldness
Male-pattern baldness usually begins as hair thinning at the hairline. It may progress rapidly and cause thinning at the crown or top of the head. Over a short period of time, the hair will thin until all that remains is a thin strip of hair above the ears and neck. This is often referred to as the “horseshoe pattern.” Since this hair will continue to grow normally, it can effectively serve as the transplant hair for a medical hair transplant.
Hair falling out in patches, excessive shedding, and an irritated scalp are not signs of male-pattern baldness. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should see your hair loss specialist about different hair restoration options. Certain medical conditions such as poor nutrition, stress, and other factors could be contributing your hair loss.
Female Pattern Baldness
Female-pattern baldness isn’t as common as male-pattern baldness, but it can be treated similarly with medical hair transplant surgery. Females generally begin experiencing hair thinning around or directly following menopause. Unlike male-pattern baldness, which causes hair loss over large sections of the scalp, women don’t rapidly lose their hair. Instead, the hair slowly becomes thinner and thinner throughout the scalp. Despite the differences, the medical hair transplant procedure has proven to be successful with female-pattern baldness.
